Dear Stata List User ,

I need to recode a variable if another variable has a nonnumeric
string observation(could have any non-numeric expression)

Eg:       recode x(......)  if y =TSTATA COMMAND  (any  non-numeric
string expression)

Can you please help me with the command to take into consideraiton
"any non-numeric string expression "

Thank you ,
Yours Sincerely,
Mike.
